Former prime minister and PTI Chairman Imran Khan on Wednesday first filed and then withdrew a petition filed in Islamabad’s district court for the suspension of non-bailable arrest warrants issued for him, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
Additional Sessions Judge Zafar Iqbal heard the petition.
During the hearing, Imran’s counsel told the court that his client had said that he wanted to appear in the court. “He is willing to give this assurance even in writing,” he added.
“Therefore, he be provided a safe exit so that he could appear in the court,” he requested.
The counsel was of the view that lives of other people could not be endangered while issuing arrest warrants for a person.
The judge remarked that bailable arrest warrants could be issued if the punishment prescribed for an offence is less than three years, while in the case of Toshakhana, there could be three-year imprisonment.
